Challenge

PNW needed more advanced business intelligence than its ERP system could provide and to move beyond Excel reporting.

Solution

JasperReports and JasperReports Server are integrated with the company’s ERP system, bringing interactive dashboards and push and pull reports withn drill-down capabilities.

Results

• Actionable data faster:
Functional teams have BI for decision making up to a month sooner than before.
• Self-sufficient business users:
Scheduled reports with drill-down capabilities reduce follow-on requests to the IT team and inquiries to other team members.
• A focus on business objectives, not report creation:
With Jaspersoft, the IT team shifts its time from creating Excel spreadsheets to analysing data and consulting with business users.
